This two-day class focuses on how to be the best front-line leader you can be. Leadership is much different than management.  Understand that your Sergeant stripes never make you a leader.  Your ability to lead is based on your level of dedication to your team and the relationships you build.   


Topics include:

·       Leadership versus Management.

·       Are you born with leadership skills or can they be forged?

·       What is a Positional Leader?

·       Influence versus Manipulation.

·       First your Friends - Now your Subordinates.

·       Leading with Subordinates, Peers, and Bosses.

·       Let them win.

·       Followership.

·       Listen first then decide.

·       Why is time on your side?

·       Love and Accountability.

·       Leadership growth – How is it accomplished?
